I have an HTC One V with an 8GB SD card. I would like to move my data from there to a 32GB card but phone doesn't recognize it when I copy through PC. There is a way to do this. What is it?
Thanx in advance to the assistance of those far more knowledgeable than I.

Download a file manager app Like PowerGrasp from the PlayStore.

Then using the file manager move your files from the SD Card to your phones internal Storage.

Then pop your new SD Card into the phone and format it.

Lastly transfer everything off the phones internal Storage onto the new SD Card.

Here's a link to PowerGrasp

Alternatively, if internal storage is an issue, save the content to your computer via USB, pop in the new SD card and copy it over.
